comment Is light required for seed germination?
@KonradRudolph in many species, germination can happen underground but not so far that light doesn't penetrate.

comment Is light required for seed germination?
The short answer is that many species do require light for germination (either to initiate germination or to break dormancy). Some require light of a specific wavelength, and some don't require light. Still others actually require absolute darkness, or the absence of specific wavelengths.
